The standard length corset is suitable for someone with an average torso length, and a relatively balanced figure who carries their weight equally on top and bottom. These corsets have a more hourglass silhouette, so it will nip in your waist and provide a more dramatic curve compared to the ‘slim silhouette’ corsets. This corset is also a good choice for those who have trained their waist and are able to fully close their previous Timeless Trends corset!
This corset is Timeless Trends label, and is made to the same specifications as Timeless Trends.

Measurements (IMPORTANT – THE HOURGLASS CORSETS ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE SLIM CORSETS!):
The standard length underbust corsets generally accommodate ribcage ~6.5 inches larger than the waist, and hips ~10 inches larger than the waist. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 30.5″ and high hip of 34″. However, as a mass-produced garment there is a natural variation in these corsets so the proportions may not be exact in every corset.
Lengthwise, the standard length underbust corsets are approximately:
11.5 inches long in the center front.
9.5 inches long at the princess seam.
9 inches long at the side seam.
12.5 inches long at the center back.
It is generally advised that corsets are ordered approximately 4 inches (10cm) smaller than your natural waist – however if you would like to have your size verified before purchase, you may fill out the measurement form on this page. Please note that this sizing guide is only for the corsets sold on this website, and is not intended to replace a consultation (where external brands are discussed freely).
This corset contains two core layers of cotton twill, and a fashion fabric of tiny floral brocade on a blue background. Contrast panels have a fashion fabric of smooth black satin. The motifs are woven right into the fabric so they won’t wear or rub off. Although it adds some subtle texture, the brocade will not feel “bumpy” under clothing.
All standard underbust corsets contain 20 spiral steel bones and 6 flat steel bones, plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces.
This corset also features 6 garter tabs, and a matching modesty placket under the busk.
This corset doesn’t come with a modesty panel, but boned floating modesty panels can be purchased separately.
